is this a true silence? no words or noise can be heard now. but there are thoughts, feelings, and dreams to be expressed. ideas waiting to be engaged in conversation awaiting acceptance or push back. but nothing can be heard now. because the voice has been ignored too many times. the voice from within has given up trying to make sounds. but speak now, and you will be heard. no more will the words from the depths of my soul be repressed and pushed aside. i am ready. you are welcome to this space at this time. hearts are opened. make your move, sound your voice, i’m counting on you now.
1 Hear what the LORD says:
Rise, plead your case before the mountains,
and let the hills hear your voice.
2 Hear, you mountains, the controversy of the LORD,
and you enduring foundations of the earth;
for the LORD has a controversy with his people,
and he will contend with Israel. (Micah 6:1-2)
omg, wow, wow, wow, just had this revelation – in my personal life my voice gets drowned out. so makes it harder to hear my own voice in other areas of my life. i think when i’m preaching is only time i feel free to speak my voice because I feel God is speaking through me!
